However, CalVCB cannot pay for:

The person responsible for paying for the victim's funeral arrangements should file the application for funeral and burial benefits. The Board cannot accept applications filed directly by a service provider such as a mortuary, funeral home, or cemetery (CCR § 649.18(b)).

CalVCB cannot pay the expenses of a person who is: on probation, on parole, or on post-release community supervision for a violent felony; incarcerated; or required to register as a sex offender. A person who is not a felon or required to register as a sex offender can be reimbursed for funeral expenses, even though the victim was a felon or required to register as a sex offender.
